You guys may have noticed me being silly a lot. And I’ve been talking about this to apetrunk too. Well, here is basically why:
I find it irritating how its extremely professional. Not to say it being professional is a bad thing, but it seems like everyone has a stick up their butt with the amount of seriousness they are expressing. Once again, it is not a bad thing, but it irks me.
I try to lighten the mood by posting funny things. I still try to maintain my seriousness when needed, but I don’t want to be thought of as a leader, or something. Look guys, I’m only 13 years old. All of those people that are my age trying to act like adults and know-it-alls are kidding themselves. I realize I don’t have any responsibility to this forum. I’m 13 years old! 11 year, 12 year, and all of us in this age range need to know our place.
I talk to gm user a lot. I hang out with him very much in most contests as well. We are in constant communication, and he is one of my best friends at least. But we are always expressing out opinions about certain things in PM’s. It intrigued me, because it seemed to show me how much we are afraid to voice our opinion. I am not, anymore. I will say what I need to (as long as it abides by the rules, of course) and I want people to know what I think.
This title does NOT gain me anything. It was a title given to me for helping people. Do not think I am better then you for it. We are equal! Make fun of me, flame me, joke with me the exact same way as if I was another member.
Don’t think I am talking about this subject because I am feeling cocky thinking I will be a mod. I won’t, I can just tell. But, I feel this pertains some important things too.
People want me to be a mod, but I don’t want to be, because I know I will have to be “professional” at all times. That bothers me, because I don’t want to become that person. I try to be the person who lightens the mood, and reminds everyone that the forums are fun. “Fun”, is what yoyoing is all about. Unless I can still be that person even after being a mod, its not going to happen.
It is how I feel, and I want all of you to know.
